Track Biography:

Ballysteen Point-to-Point is held under the auspices of Stonehall Harriers Hunt.  Stonehall Harriers celebrated their centenary in 2011, having been founded in 1911. Having held a point-to-point in Askeaton for many years, the Stonehall Harriers began holding the Ballysteen Point-to-Point on 4 May 1996.  Originally an evening meeting in May, the meeting moved to a Sunday in April after about 10 years. The point-to-point has run every year since 1996, with the exception of 2001.

Michael O’Shaughnessy, Master of the Hunt, has been in his position since 1953, and he remains actively involved in the Stonehall Harriers and the point-to-point.

Ballysteen Point-to-Point has been held on a family farm since its inception in 1996.  The course is left-handed, with three circuits (totalling three miles) and 15 fences per race.

Many winners in Ballysteen have progressed beyond point-to-points, including Celtic Native, Monksland and the famous Faugheen.  Faugheen won his first race at Ballysteen.

There is very little form to go on in this with AHEAD OF SCHEDULE the only one of the 31 entries here that has previously completed a race. He improved upon his debut in an ultra-competitive Borris House maiden when a fine second at Portrush a fortnight ago and sets the benchmark. Oscer Romero was well fancied ahead of his Punchestown debut and the stables horses went well last week, whilst the market will give the best guide as to what can be expected from the newcomers.

BRIEF AMBITION was a well-supported odds-on favourite when appearing at Portrush last month and whilst he had to settle for second behind Glynn, that looked a smart sort and he will be hoping to continue his progression this season. Kiriglote outran his odds to finish a very encouraging third in that same contest and there may not be a great deal separating that pair, with stable companion Jeremy Sunshine another that cannot be discounted. He finished fourth on his debut at Ballyvodock in a race which has already produced two subsequent maiden winners, and that form has to respected.

SOME ARE LUCKY could be turned out quickly following his Barbour Cup success last Sunday.

All Hell Let Loose was only denied in the dying strides at Ballynoe last month and is entitled to go close, with Samanntom back between the flags following his run in the Cheltenham Foxhunters last month.

FRANK AND HONEST has offered promise with two consecutive outings at Tyrella earlier in the year, and he finished a fine second on her latest visit to that good ground Co. Down venue. She likely sets the standard in this. The Colin Bowe-pair of Dont Dismiss Me and Quivvy Lough have to be respected with plenty of experience behind them, whilst Awesome Lady took a big step forward at Durrow recently. She may now be a 10-year-old but she has very little mileage on the clock.

Preview

OPERATION OVERLOAD took a big step forward from his Lisraongh debut when a close third at Rathcannon on good ground back in November and he would look the likely answer to this on his return from a mid-season break. Stable companion Blue Templar has been a beaten favourite in each of his four outings in maiden point-to-points, however he did go very close at Lisronagh recently in a big field contest and should be bang there once again, with Mister Flemington capable of a big run on his form with the Tetretema Cup runner-up Cle En Main from Ballinaboola.
